Math, Measurement, and Photography<br />By: Jessica McCord<br />ECE 4401/01 <br />A lesson for Kindergarten<br />
Ms. McCord decided to go to store to buy items for the classroom. She started with alphabet cards. Each card is 3 paperclips long. If one card is taken away, how many paperclips will be left?<br />
Hint for Problem #1<br />There are 6 paperclips altogether. 3 of them will go leave when one card is taken away.<br />*BONUS* What sight word does this spell?<br />
Ms. McCord also bought a pack of colored pencils. One colored pencil is 6 paperclips long. How many times will 2 paperclips go into 6 paperclips?<br />
Hint for Problem #2<br />Count by 2’s until you get to the number 6. How many times did you count by 2’s until you got to 6?<br />
Ms. McCord could not bring herself to leave the store without buying some books. If 1 book is 5 paperclips long, how many paperclips would we use to measure 2 books?<br />
Hint for Problem #3<br />Both books are the same size. If 1 book is 5 paperclips long, then the other book must also be 5 paperclips long. <br />
Ms. McCord decided that two books just weren’t enough. She decided to buy one more book at the store. This book is 10 paperclips long. How many groups of 5 can you take out of the 10 paperclips?<br />
Hint for Problem #4<br />Subtract 5 paperclips from the 10 paperclips until you get to 0. How many times did you have to do that?<br />
GPS<br />MKM1. Students will group objects according to common properties such as longer/shorter, more/less, taller/shorter, and heavier/lighter. <br /> a. Compare and order objects on the basis of length. <br />MKP2. Students will reason and evaluate mathematical arguments. <br /> a. Recognize reasoning and proof as fundamental aspects of mathematics. <br />MKN2. Students will use representations to model addition and subtraction. <br /> a. Use counting strategies to find out how many items are in two sets when they are <br /> combined, separated, or compared. <br />
